8 medium potato
red chilli powder as required
2 cup refined oil
salt as required
1 teaspoon turmeric
4 cup all purpose flour
6 tablespoon mint leaves
To start with, cook washed potatoes in the pressure cooker after adding enough water to submerge them completely. Cook the potatoes upto 2 whistles. Meanwhile, finely chop the mint leaves and green chillies.
Once the potatoes are boiled, drain the water and keep them aside to cool down. Then peel their skin and mash them well. In a bowl, mix mint leaves, green chilies, mashed potatoes, red chili and turmeric powder.
Now in a bowl, sift all purpose flour and salt. Mix nicely and pour enough water to knead a dough. Set the dough aside for half an hour and cover it with a lid.
Now make small equal sized balls out of the dough. Dust the rolling board with dry flour. Over a medium flame place a deep shallow pan and heat oil in it. Now, one by one roll the balls into a small disc. Stuff them with the prepared potato-mint leaves stuffing and roll them again into balls. Now, take one ball and roll it into a small circular disc.
Turn the flame to low and carefully place one disc in the hot oil and deep fry it it gently pressing ladle to make it puffy. Make as much puris as possible in one batch and drain the oil. Transfer the puris in a plate and repeat the process to make the other ones.
